    I love Merlin, all seasons were amazing, but i think season 3 was the best. Morgana evilness made this season very dark! I hated Morgana in good way. Looking forward to season 4! and Good job writers and actors/actress! Fantastic job. =) 10/10.

    While it's obvious that Merlin is firmly in the "family oriented" department, it never seems to hinder my enjoyment of the show. It's difficult to find a fantasy or sci-fi series these days that doesn't get ripped apart by critics or canceled due to ratings without ever having a fair shake. If you like epic fantasy, dragons, or swords & sorcery, you'll probably find at least a little enjoyment from this show. Good clean fun for the whole family. Expand

    Show has really come into its own, it's awesome. It's not gritty and is family friendly (aside from the wounds, fighting, magical explosions and intense scenes regarding betrayal and death), but I feel it sticks to the legends pretty well and has moments that are just incredibly moving.

    not every series can tread on it's familiar grounds and get away with it. But season 3 of merlin does and get's away with it, because it's such a charming show. Despite most episodes being a re-make of season 1and 2, i still enjoyed it alot. The characters are so believeable you can't help but fall in love with them. And in this season,the plot get's thicker and the acting get's better.Definitely a must watch for the family.ost episodes being a re-make of season 1and 2, i still enjoyed it alot.

    The Merlin series has matured well with more complex stories and a general avoidance of soap opera story telling. I really like the humor and close Arthur and Merlin friendship/bromance.

    The series' tone has gotten a little grim over time, but there's still sudsy fun in its Xena-style fantasy mayhem (giant scorpions! evil witches!) and the leads' high-camp banter.
